: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 5
**As long as you're not reducing the snowballing in this game I won't play League.** In its current state it's a total fiesta with games being decided after merely 12-15 minutes and usually ending after 20-25 minutes. I've yet to play a single game that even reaches the 30 minute mark, it's THAT bad. The gold difference is usually between 15-20k for every game, how on earth can you delay work on such a pressing issue for so long? A lategame champion like Cassiopeia isn't even playable in such a meta since her lanephase is downright terrible. Also that list of nerf candidates isn't even remotely big enough, there are 35 (!) champions who have a 53% winrate at least. This new season marks a whole new low for this game.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: December 15
The 7.24b changes weren't enough to push Cassiopeia into a viable state, hopefully she'll see some followup changes on patch 8.1. Otherwise there's no hope for her. She's been unplayable since patch 7.18 already, this 20-25 minute meta is downright unbearable for her. Additional scaling is of no use to her if she's rushing 3 mana-items that give little to no AP in the first place. What she needs is more basedamage and flat mpen. I also could name you at least 25 champs who are still in need of severe nerfs due to having a 53-55% winrate, things are very dire. You *need* to start gutting these champs.
: Do you think they made a typo on her e? Because that nerf is a bit uncalled for even if she were overpowered right now, which I don't believe she is at the moment.
She never was op to begin with, her winrate has been terrible since the 7.18 nerfs which is why she's receiving some much needed buffs now.
: Details on our extra patch coming in December!
So it's december 14 now, where's patch 7.24b? It's still not out.

**When are you finally going to address the insane snowballing in this game** that has turned every match into a 25 minute game? Lategame champs like Cass are unplayable in such an environment, and buffing her E-scaling won't help her very much in that regard since she already rushes three mana-items just to function which gives her very little AP in the first place. **Speaking of Cass, when will you update her passive?** There's no use for a 6th itemslot in a metagame that doesn't support a lategame, and being omitted from getting your first powerspike via boot purchase is a severe handicap. The least she deserves would be flat mpen per level as some form of secondary passive which would put her at 18 flat mpen on max level, just like every other mage in the game.
: Spent all my saved up BE on a champ I hate. :(
You chose a pretty bad moment to buy this champ, right now she's among the worst midlaners in the whole game. She'll need some serious buffs before she's worth playing again.
: "Having a low cd point and click ability as your main source of damage is a terrible design, " You mean an ADC?
Marksmen are inherently toxic by design due to the fact that they can be played in any lane (or even the jungle), they're simply that good. Meanwhile Cassiopeia, who's meant to play like an adc, has to spend ungodly amounts of mana just to perform the equivalent of an auto-attack. There's no actual skill or counterplay involved if your damage is entirely depending on rightclicking someone.
Penns (EUW)
: >3 mana items with all 3 of them giving high AP unless you go Abyssal lel
You usually get a Tear and Catalyst first which give you zero AP on their own, then you finish RoA which will be done usually at the 15 minute mark. At that point you'll receive merely 60 AP which isn't even enough to make up for the 7.18 nerfs. Then you'll be getting a Lost Chapter (yet another mana-item) and the other components. At around 25 minutes you'll have your second item finished, and that's when the game's usually over.

: Skins are released throughout the time period the patch they were released on is live. For the Star Guardian skins, it took towards the end of the cycle to release them. For some other skins, they are released almost immediately. Riot released Ashe's skin quicker because of the Worlds prize pool promotion they are doing with it and the whole charity thing. Eternum Cass will be released before the next patch goes live, probably a week or so before at the latest. Just have a little more patience for a bit longer and it'll be released soon =)

It's early game and she isn't super quick. ;) It's nice of you to come back to this thread to console us Cass players. I'm still checking the store 50 times a day though, hehe {{sticker:sg-zephyr}}
It's been an entire week now and still no trace of the skin.

: She's coming! It's early game and she isn't super quick. ;)
I see you just released Championship Ashe - where's Eternum Cass then? Please don't neglect her any longer, we've waited years already.
: Hi AquariusGine! Looks like it was just the promo header that was set to an incorrect time/date to go live. ;-; Eternum Cass will be here before you know it! {{sticker:sg-jinx}}
It's been 4 days so far and still no snek skin. {{sticker:cass-cry}}
: Eternum Cassiopeia appears in store but can't be purchased
2 days later and still not in the store.{{sticker:cass-cry}}
: {{item:3140}} Superior to {{summoner:1}}
Cleanse could really use a buff, it's sad how just one item can replace a summoner spell entirely with superior effect and a far lower cooldown.
: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but apparently it's not as easy as just turning them into real skins for free :( From RiotVitzkrieg, the art lead on Star Guardians: > Glad you like the alien versions of the monsters we made for the mode! I'm sorry to say there aren't any plans right now to release those versions as skins though. They were built specifically for the mode, and don't meet the criteria for full champion skins. That being said, all the tech we used for their visuals is reusable and will hopefully lead to cooler skins in the future!
Wouldn't the most reasonable course of action be to sell them as 390 RP skins like Assassin Yi? You heard the people, they'd welcome any fresh content at this point (especially the Rek'Sai and Vel'Koz players).
: Wonder why diversity is none existant in your game riot?
What wasn't shown in the video: her running out of mana a moment later or even getting ganked by your jungler. She's dead meat if she tries an early all-in like that whereas you only need to pop one potion to outsustain her after this.
: Ornn's items aren't _meant_ to be cost-efficient. They're meant to be _slot_ efficient. They're the most slot-efficient items that exist. That's the thing with end-game items. They're not really cost efficient. They're expensive, and they give good stats, but the stats are rarely worth the gold cost. Instead, it makes up for it by giving the _best_ stats. All of Ornn's items qualify as that.
So much for being the greatest blacksmith Runeterra has ever seen. He might be overcharging people for his products.
: I am ready for these Cassiopeia buffs
I don't see how lategame buffs are going to do her any good in a meta *without* a lategame.

: We haven't announced it yet I don't think, there'll be a regular rune though that grants both some % MS from game start and some other stuff in the new system. Goal with it was to offer a replacement for MS quints for many of the current users.
It's too bad Cassiopeia is entirely unable to use any of those runes due to her inability to even get/wear boots. Will she receive any compensation?
: that gets me thinking Petrifying Gaze _After casting Petrifying Gaze, Cassiopeia can re-activate the ability within 5 seconds to swallow a struck enemy champion if they are below 20% of their maximum health, executing them and increasing their death-timer by 10 seconds._ {{champion:69}} + {{champion:223}} /{{champion:72}} ?
Oh you people and your silly vore fantasies. Also don't forget about Cho'Gath. Mega Gnar was supposed to eat people, too, in one of his earlier gameplay concepts.
: Can Cassiopeia unhinge her jaw?
Quality content as usual from GD.
: Eternum Cassiopia Splash Art Edit coming soon to PBE
**I'd like to know why she hasn't received a summoner icon yet.** Meanwhile Championship Ashe, a skin of similiar value, is being released with one. Infact several skins that were released this year so far were accompanied by fitting summoner icons, so why are they omitting Cassiopeia from the same treatment? This seems extremely unfair to me, especially after 4.5 years of waiting. The summoner icon I'm wearing right now isn't even related to her, it's dedicated to Lunar Wraith Caitlyn of all people - can you believe it?
: Disappointing. It seems they did a quickie on this one and be done with it.
Yeah, that's pretty much the impression it left on me. They probably didn't have enough time to reflect on it, otherwise they would have realized the issues with it. Seems a bit rushed.
: Eternum Cassiopia Splash Art
Two things that need to be said: 1. The angle isn't very good, her face appears far too manly like that. Maybe make her turn her head so we get a better and more suited look on her face? The chin is the issue here. 2. The loading screen version has far too much unused space, either zoom out to show more of her or turn the thing a bit around like they did for Lee Sin's portrait ingame.

Catalin10GG (EUNE)
: Cassiopeia mains are finally geting a new skin! Eternum Cassiopeia here boys
If there's one thing that could be improved about this skin, it's definitely her ultimate. Remember the crazy sound Eternum Nocturne's R made whenever he used it? That stuff was *extremely* bonechilling. It'd be a shame to miss out on that for an ultimate that's supposedly as terrifying. Maybe make it twice as loud for her? Also an additional metal-soundeffect for the cast wouldn't hurt either.
: [SHIPPED!] Ziggs' Arcade Blast, an arcade-themed 2D-platformer made in 48 hours with your input
This level of dedication reminds me of the Amumu animation your collegues once did, another spontaneous project made by some fans within the team itself. Very inspiring.

: at this point, balance has become a meme
The same could be also said of their skin-department, really.

: Twitch is a ranged aoe rengar.
It's Tom and Jerry all over again. That rat is far too violent.
: @Riot: please do not add "channel blink" as a rune. It will make flash EVEN MORE mandatory.
This is going to be an absolutely mandatory pick for ANY immobile champ who's unable to get past walls on their own.

The point I was trying to make is that Riot should have had the foresight to never have made this skins and to instead use their time to make other skins that people have literally been requesting _for years_. The writing is already on the walls - Riot is just refusing to read it. lol dude chill, yorick will get his skin this year and for cassiopeia, give them some time to actually fix her tail animation. would you rather them release a cheap ass reskin or one that will last a while.
Her tail already got fixed and there's still no trace of a Cass skin. Seeing Ahri get yet another skin (and it's a legendary one, too) really broke the camel's back. As if the previous releases of legendary skins for cancer like Caitlyn, Riven, Yasuo and Lee wasn't bad enough.
: I'm kind of disappointed at the community's reaction to the Star guardian skins
You clearly lack the understanding of what it feels like to be a Yorick, Swain or Cass main. Otherwise you wouldn't condemn their reactions like that. Years of ongoing negligence will inevitably lead to this kind of behavior.

: It should be today but Cobra's out sick. I'll see if I can contact him or get his template to post it.
: unicorns and horses
{{champion:16}} {{champion:74}} ?
: Reminder: Malzahar, Kog'maw, Zac, Veigar, Zyra, Karthus, Corki etchave all gotten new skins recently
None of these champions have even remotely waited as long as Cassiopeia, though. Their plight is nothing compared to hers. And before anyone tries to mention Yorick -> he already received a fullblown VGU, Cass has not. Same goes for Urgot, also Swain is an upcoming candidate for that treatment. This leaves the snakelady as the number one neglected champion in this game.
: Thanks lad
What's your favorite ~~f e t i s h~~?
: So we went against this Ascension strat that forced an infinite game...
Riot actually started suspending people's accounts after using this "pacifist" strategy on Ascension:
: Majority of those champs were slated for vgu and riot made it clear that they really did not want to double their workload before the vgu happened. I think the only people with a valid complaint are yorick, and Shen because they had an adequate amount of time pass after the vgu. Oh, and Cass too.
Cass never received a VGU, she only received a TU back in 2014 and 2 reworks in total. And even then, reworks never stopped Riot from releasing new skins for Ryze, Kayle and Tryndamere (all champs who are inevitably awaiting further reworks). It's flatout bias and nothing else.
Viviana (NA)
: Oooh look another Ahri skin
It also happens to be a 1820 RP tier skin. Who would have seen it coming.
: That... doesn't really hurt Riot, though... It doesn't matter whether or not you spend your RP, you've already given them your money. You just aren't getting any use out of it.
At the same time they aren't giving me any reason to ever purchase RP again.
: Just boycott them. They make skins for popular characters because they'd obviously sell more than the ones for 1% playrate champions. If they see ppl not buying them and making less incomes than for the ones for less used characters then they'll change targets.
I've been boycotting them since years now, infact I saved up over 4700 RP on my main acc. And I won't spend a single one until they've released a new Cass skin.
: @Riot, about the new Star Guardian skins
Every single skinrelease is just another reminder of how little they even care about *certain* champions. At this rate it'll take **FIVE years** for a Cass skin to come out, that's simply unacceptable.
Canastus (NA)
: So about that Reddit leak, Riot.
The latest social media teaser has been released, Star Guardian Ezreal + Syndra have been confirmed. This only leaves Eve as the final thing on that list. We're also getting Star Guardian Soraka + Ahri.
: Do not buff Adaptive Helm
The item is inherently broken against dps champs, just like you said. Cassiopeia feels completely useless once this damn thing gets bought.
: PSA: Singed has a bloody 55% win rate right now
That's what happens if you give "Grounded" cc to a champ who can reliably cover a big area with his puddle of sticky stuff. Heck, he can even throw it on himself which even Cass can't do with her miasma. The range of his pool is bigger by 200 units, too. That's some extreme utility there, not to forget that he can proc his passive by simply walking into teammates.
: Pantheon has had a 53%-55% win rate for about 6 months now if not more
He's the Ahri of top-lane you could say. Ignored by Riot's balance department since ages while being abused by the playerbase without any nerfs in sight.
